We’re a social bunch — we social media enthusiasts!

Do you post routinely on Facebook and Twitter? Did you ever wonder if there was a correlation between your online and offline socialability?
Guess what? There is! (I thought so, too.)
A new survey by the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project reveals that 80% of people who are active online also participate in some kind of organized group, versus 56% of non-Internet users. (Download the study)
But doesn’t it kind of beg the question, who doesn’t go online? Seriously, I would like to know. Babies, maybe?
Social media users are even more likely to be active: 82% of social network users (like Facebook) and 85% of Twitter users are group participants.
